Dumpling with durian dip returns to Goodwood Park

    by -

    Dragon Boat Festival is just around the corner and so is the time to indulge in dumplings.

    If you’re after dumplings with a twist, check out Goodwood Park Hotel’s creations.

    This year, the hotel’s famed Chinese restaurants Ming Jiang are rolling out the braised pork belly with black garlic dumpling ($14.75). Using intensely flavoured Japan black garlic, the dumpling is slow steamed for four hours to yield that perfectly soft texture and extra smokey aroma.

    The other new flavour to try is the braised Kurobuta pork belly with preserved vegetables dumpling ($12.65). Combining deep fried kurobuta pork, a secret blend of species, stir fried preserved vegetables and soft glutinous rice, the dumpling brings to mind a childhood favourite grandma used to make.


    Durian lovers will be happy to know that Goodwood is bringing back the steamed ‘kee zhang’ with D24 dip ($6.65 for 3). The sound of this decadent combination is enough to make us drool!

    All dumplings are available for dine-in and takeaway at the Min Jiang and Ming Jiang at One North from 1 to 20 June 2015. Prices differ slightly for dine-in and takeaway.
